I waited a couple of days to write anything about this one. After thinking about it a bit, this book is a 4.5 star read (a 9 in my own grading system). All kinds of things going on in this one. Lots of "railroading" before they figure out what's really going on. To me Day is a truly tragic character, and I love that about him. With some of the happenings at the end, Ms. Lu has laid the groundwork for some major upheaval. If she carries through with what she setup she has some huge brass cajones. I hope she doesn't, for my own sake if nothing else, as I'm having trouble seeing where things might go, but then it could all be a setup (and I can see where that might have come from). Anyway, great read.........now I have to wait for the conclusion. RECOMMEND!!
